It’s okay to admit it: you love to indulge in a good selfie every once in a while. Maybe it’s because you look really great that day or you just got your hair done and you want to show it off, or you’re trying to impress your crush… or you’re just bored. Whatever the reason, selfies can be fun, especially when you can post them on Instagram or Facebook or Snapchat them out to all the cute boys in your class.
But… there are some moments when it’s just not okay to take a selfie. I loves selfies as much as the next girl, but even I know that some places (or times) are just off limits. A few weeks ago, I was going to a funeral with my younger sister and while we were waiting on line, she took a picture of herself for Snapchat. On line for a funeral! I love my sister, but it was just a little too much for me to handle. And last week, I was introduced to the blog Selfies At Serious Places, which is all sorts of horrible. Come on, people! Before you smile pretty for the camera, please consider your surroundings. I feel the need to say that this includes Vines as well. Check out the 7 most inappropriate places or times to take a selfie.
In The Middle Of A BreakupThis dude got dumped while taking a Vine (still counts as a selfie). That's just... maybe this is why you're getting dumped, dude. Maybe this is why. Source: Vine
During A Car AccidentI like the casual #followme hashtag thrown in there. JK, I don't. Seriously, this girl looks REALLY young. Shouldn't she be focusing on what's going on or making sure she's okay instead of taking sad-face pictures for Instagram? I don't know. Just a thought. Source: Instagram
While You're DrivingI sincerely hope this girl isn't actually driving a car while taking this picture, but sadly, I have seen someone take a selfie WHILE DRIVING. Which is SO DANGEROUS. Don't do it at red lights either - you're just distracting yourself! Do you want your next selfie to be a car accident one? Source: Instagram
At A Funeral Or WakeI know you like how look in that black dress, but... a funeral is a very sad occasion. Have a little respect for the person who died and the heartbroken people they left behind. This is just not okay. Source: Instagram
When You're In The HospitalIf you want to take a picture of yourself in a hospital bed, I guess go ahead. I don't know. I wouldn't. But if you're in the hospital visiting someone who's sick or you're around people who are seriously ill, please don't take your phone out and start taking duckface Snapchats. It's not in good taste.

At Any Kind Of Serious MemorialThanks to the Tumblr I mentioned before, Selfies At Serious Places, we now know that there are people in the world who go to Holocaust memorials and take selfies. I just... I can't. Source: Selfies at Serious Places
While Your'e Going To The BathroomUm... TMI. I know you're trying to be funny and edgy but it's kind of just gross. Keep your bathroom face to yourself. It's not a good look. Source: Instagram
